Responsiveness with React Native Normalize

Use the normalize functio from react-native-normalize whenever you have to use a hard value (100, 200, 1000,...). This function will adapt your value accordingly to different screen sizes

Without normalize

With normalize

You can navigate without navigation prop by using NavigationService from src/lib/NavigationService.ts

import NavigationService from '../lib/NavigationService';


NavigationService.navigate('ChatScreen', { userName: 'Lucy' });


When you run react-native link and the linked library has podspec file, then the linking will use Podfile. To disable this feature, remove

# Add new pods below this line

from line 24 in ios/Podfile

Static bundle

The static bundle is built every time you target a physical device, even in Debug. To save time, the bundle generation is disabled in Debug


You can use react-native-screens with react-navigation in order to improve memory consumption

  • Install and follow steps in Usage with react-navigation (without Expo) from react-native-screens

  • Open ./src/index.tsx and uncomment

// import { useScreens } from 'react-native-screens';
// useScreens();

Beta distribution with Fastlane

  • Install fastlane
    # Using RubyGems
    sudo gem install fastlane -NV
    # Alternatively using Homebrew
    brew cask install fastlane


  • Open your project Xcode workspace and update your app's Bundle Identifier and Team
  • Initialize fastlane
    cd <PROJECT_NAME>/ios
    fastlane init
  • Distribute your app
    fastlane beta


  • Collect your Google Credentials

  • Open your project with Android Studio and update your app's applicationId in build.gradle (Module: app) file

  • Select Generated Signed Bundle / APK... from the Build menu

  • Next then Create new... under Key store path then Next and Finish

  • The first time you deploy your application, you MUST upload it into Google Play Console manually. Google don't allow to use theirs APIs for the first upload.

  • Create your application in the Google Play Console (unlike for iOS Fastlane cannot do that for you)

  • Make sure that these 4 checkmark icons are green

    Recommended order: Pricing & distribution, Content rating, Store listing and App releases

    You can find the required assets for Store listing in the publishing/android folder

  • Initialize fastlane

    cd <PROJECT_NAME>/android
    fastlane init
  • Use the Fastfile from publishing

    cp publishing/android/fastlane/Fastfile android/fastlane
  • Distribute your app

    fastlane beta

    There is no official plugin to automatically upgrade android version code (unlike the iOS lane).
    Before each deployment, be sure to manually upgrade the versionCode value inside android/app/build.gradle.


Apple Store Connect's missing compliance

If you dont' use Fastlane and you don't want to Provide Export Compliance Information at every push , then add this to your Info.plist
